Employment requirement

Post by su6 » Wed May 08, 2013 8:49 am

I will be applying for my naturalisation application in early 2014.

I have been in employment after getting my ILR earlier this year, but I want to quit my job due to some personal reasons. I want to study for sometime also.

While applying for naturalisation next year, would my unemployment or being a student cause a problem? Any thoughts/ advice pls. Thanks.

Being employed is not a requirement for naturalisation. Indeed, some people who naturalise have never been employed in the UK (an obvious group of such people being women who might put "home duties" as their employment).

Thanks Christophe. I got my ILR through Tier 1; so hopefully still my being out of work/ or a student is acceptable for naturalisation? thanks.

No, it should not affect on your status when applying for citizenship.

Though they ask for the employment information in the form about what you do and where you work, the usual information.

The most important bit is the tax you pay and there is nothing outstanding or any issues with HMRC.

Good luck
